Does the arrival of the new year bring different sentiments in a foreign land?

Through poetry, music and stories, migrant workers in Singapore explore what the new year means to them. Featuring performances in multiple languages across genres, this programme showcases the talents of accomplished performers from the migrant community.  

These performers are a group of migrant workers from countries such as Bangladesh, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, China and more, who work largely as domestic helpers or as construction or marine workers.

Where: Esplanade Concourse
Entry: Free

What is it to be a human? How do we choose to relate? Are our engagements deeply meaningful? Can we heal ourselves – soul, spirit, mind, brain and body – our past, present and future. If so, how? Can trauma – deeply embedded within – be cured through engagements with arts? 

Over the past decade, Hiromi Tango has been dedicated to generating a healing conversation through arts engagement. What is this notion of Healing? 

Chromosomes explore issues around nature versus nurture, and whether we really do have the ability to change the complex characteristics that define us as individuals. 

When: Feb 17-18
Where: Gillman Barracks 
Entry: Free
